Ilm & Amal

Sufyan al-Thawri used to say: “Knowledge will cry out to action [to join it]. If it answers all is well. If it does not knowledge departs.”

Al-Hasan al-Basri used to say: “Do not be like one who studies like a scholar but acts like a fool.”

Sufyan al-Thawri would also say: “Knowledge is enlivened by active search and sincere implementation, and it dies through neglecting these two things.”


May Allah help us in hastening to implement what we know & not to search for knowledge for knowledge’s sake alone.
